As part of the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative, National Logistics Corporation (NLC) has developed three projects in the health and education sectors in far-flung areas of Gilgit-Baltistan. These projects have been handed over to the local administration after the completion of work.
The CSR projects include the rehabilitation of the middle school at Naltar Pine, the upgradation of the Basic Health Unit (BHU) at Nomal and boys school at Sost.
Students of the middle school located in Naltar Pine were facing difficulties in the absence of facilities in harsh weather conditions. Upon request of the locals, NLC Engineers undertook construction work including partition walls, the roof of the ceiling, fixing of doors, windows, electrical and renovation works.
Likewise, rehabilitation of Basic Health Unit at Nomal was also carried out by NLC Engineers. The facility caters to the needs of people of Nomal and adjoining areas. A large number of patients benefited with the provision of additional facilities at the BHU Nomal. NLC engineers also constructed a school for boys at Sost. The scope of work included a complete double-story building from foundation to finishing work and the provision of allied facilities.
All these projects have been developed by NLC free of cost and are part of CSR initiatives being undertaken by NLC across Pakistan.
